“The heat from sewer grates warm my bed
the snow ain’t cold anymore
My feet are so wet
From the holes in my shoes
the shoes that walked out your door
But I don’t care
don’t push me away
You can’t hurt me anymore
Not anymore” (-Jimmy Zero and Stiv Bators)

You know what’s crazy? This is crazy. Two weeks ago went to a big old Hippy festival called Lightning in a Bottle in Central California and all the music was EDM aka Electronic Dance Music. Ugh! I couldn’t find anyone who actually likes this stuff – so plastic, contrived, lifeless, and soulless. It’s not real music. More anti-music than music. It hurts to hear it. I don’t care if it’s popular. It’s horrible.

Get back to town and go to see Todd Rundgren at the Roxy. An intimate small venue show with one of the Top Five Rock Genius’s of all time, right? Multi-multi-mega-mega talented singer, musician, songwriter and record producer. And the whole show is guess what? Electronic dance music. Seriously?

Self titled solo LP

Respected NYC songwriter, Joey Pinter, never received household namebrand status, like so many of his old C.B.G.B.’s and Max’s Kansas City associates in Blondie, the Ramones, or even the NY Dolls, but underground record collectors, old school people who were there, and in-the-know punk enthusiasts all speak of him with the same glowing, illustrative language most usually reserved for his old friends, Walter Lure and Johnny Thunders. As a lead vocalist, he ain’t no Carl Wilson, more like a punk rock George Thorogood and the Destroyers.
